The North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) eleemosynary corporation, founded on January 7, 2010, under the laws of the State of South Carolina.  

The corporation is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to support and advance the general welfare and prosperity of the greater North Myrtle Beach, SC area so that its citizens and all areas of the community may prosper and lessen the burden of local and state governments.  Particular emphasis shall be given to those areas and programs that impact a community's quality of life, including civic, cultural, economic and educational development.  

The initial interest in establishing the North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation was to help facilitate the Chamber's 5-year strategic plan entitled "Building North Myrtle Beach", a $3.5 million, five-year, sustainable growth & prosperity initiative aimed at growing the visitor & destination market; diversifying the local economy; and equipping the chamber as the focal point for business.

Since the Foundation's creation, more than $300,000 have been expended to advance specific allowable action steps in the "Building North Myrtle Beach" plan.  

The North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation continues to expand our programs and action on a range of important community and economic development issues.

In order to strengthen our efforts, the Chamber Foundation intends to seek financial support from a wider range of investors, stakeholders and donors.  

An investment in the North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation will help ensure North Myrtle Beach has all the means necessary for economic prosperity and sustainable community development.
